    EXPERT TIPS

    When making your cheesecake mixture, this recipe calls for softened or room temperature cream cheese. Softened cream cheese is creamier when mixed and easier to blend with the other ingredients. If your cream cheese is too cold, your mixture will be lumpy.

    If you don’t have time to wait for your cream cheese to soften at room temperature, remove the cream cheese from its packaging and place in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave the cream cheese in 10-second increments until it’s soft, but not too warm.

    Be careful not to over mix your batter. Too much air can cause the cheesecake to rise too rapidly in the oven and crack. You can avoid this by mixing the cream cheese and sugar thoroughly and gently blend once you add the egg.

    Don’t forget to flour your fingers! The flour will keep the cookie dough from sticking to your fingers when you press it evenly into the bottom of the pan for the crust.
